Fake-News-Enabling Technology is Here Now
Elite Establishment universities have evidently been studying these evidence-fabrication techniques for years.
RESEARCHERS HAVE developed mind-blowing new video technology that allows a person to transfer their facial expressions on to another person in real-time — and it’s already being tested on George W Bush, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and Vladimir Putin.
The development, which is as equally impressive as it is disturbing, is the result of a collaboration between researchers from Germany’s University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics, and Stanford University in California.
The study, Face2Face: Real-time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos, “animates the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-renders the manipulated output video in a photo-realistic fashion,” according to the researchers.
The project works with a webcam and manipulates videos in real-time.
The research team have showcased the technology in a video in which they choose some of the people one may most want to manipulate, if they had the chance.
The technology tracks the facial expressions of both source and target video and addresses details such as teeth by finding the mouth interior that best matches the re-targeted expression and warping it to produce the right fit.
Reenactment is achieved by “fast and efficient deformation transfer” between source and target and the process is completed as the synthesized target’s face is re-rendered on top of the corresponding video footage.
Concerns have been raised, however, about how the technology could be applied — and if we will be able to trust what we see.
Transferring facial expressions from live actors to recorded actors. Incredible. Makes the future hard to trust. https://t.co/Vkeglu6OXA

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
